Hanayama Difficulty Level 5 – Very hard
Can you take the three pieces of the puzzle apart? Can you get the puzzle back together again? There are three interwoven pieces to the puzzle. Can you separate each piece of the puzzle?
The puzzle was invented in 2008 by the Japanese master puzzle designer Akio Yamamoto. He says the three pieces each have a spiral body (hence vortex) and two protrusions. When assembled each piece is unified into a flat object. In order to undo this complex entanglement, it will be necessary to unbind them three dimensionally.
The motivation behind this idea is the statue of Asura. Asura is an ancient Indian god and also a protector of Buddhism. The figure with the three faces and six arms conjured up the concept of Trinity.
